i’m jealous of alex gross



Whether you’re into superheroes, Star Trek, or weird little devil boys who enjoy iced coffee {perhaps a statement on the establishment where the devil boy purchased his iced coffee?}, LA based artist¬†Alex Gross has something for you! In this very large series of mixed media work, he paints over found vintage portraits, and adds just a dash {alright, a huge dollop} of pop culture. Love.

    So amusing – I love the fun of the superhero juxtaposed with those old faces and eyes. The original portrait photos are often so pompous and this is a great way to express what they’re “really” thinking.
